Words of A Dying Man: Reminding What is Important In Life

Battling with terminal cancer Eric Mac Lean, 28 yrs old of Wisconsin thought of making a video and posted on You Tube to say good bye leaving us all a message of love and peace. Let us listen to his words for such may be intended for each and every one of us lest we take the good things of this life all for granted.

Let us be grateful! God has blessed us with so much love and here, someone like Eric, tries to make us understand. We thank him too for the courage to share his thoughts..

Closer to Death Closer to God :In the Jungles of Nembe, Nigeria

It was in the year  2000….

Big and tall trees could be seen along the swamp while the rays of the sun break through the leaves. The place was so peaceful and quiet except for the sound of the wild birds. They were music to the ear! Air was so fresh! The deep forest was almost like a Paradise!

The speedboat which carried us from the Port Harcourt Base was zigzagging along the river. The trips were usually enjoyable and interesting. Life indeed had so much to offer! Our destination was to the Houseboats stationed along the swamp nearby the oil pipeline project in Nembe.

One evening we were unexpectedly visited by some rebels. Armed with long bladed weapons and guns they had demanded for some things they badly needed. It was a frightening “face-to-face” with them .What a life changing moment! There was nothing left to do but pray, deeply, and hoping to reach the Heavens instantly!

And God listened! The fear was soon gone. Lessons were learned. Life depended on its Maker!

Pray! Talk with Him heart-to-heart!

He has been waiting for you.

He loves.

He will always do.

We all are His children. Trust and strive to be happy!

Isaiah 45:12

It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts.”
